NEW YORK - Former City Transportation Commissioner Polly Trottenberg will soon be Deputy Secretary of Transportation in the incoming Biden Administration.
Trottenberg stepped down from her job with the city last month after serving seven years.
In the announcement, the Biden Transition highlighted Trottenberg's role in the Vision Zero program, the 14th Street Busway, and implementing outdoor dining.
It went on to say, "She led NYCDOT’s COVID-19 response and recovery, transforming city streets to promote sustainable transportation and economic recovery, including one of the largest outdoor restaurant programs in the country."
Trottenberg previously served in the Obama-Biden administration as the Assistant Secretary for Transportation Policy.
